Quebecois Pea Soup

6 liters of soup

4 cups dried yellow soup peas or split peas
5 lt water
3 ham bone
5 large onions, diced
5 carrots, peeled and chopped
4 stalks celery (including leaves), chopped
2 tsp savory
2 bay leaf

Rinse peas. In large soup pot, combine peas, water, ham bone or ham, onions, carrots, celery, savory and bay leaf; bring to boil. Skim off any scum. Cover and simmer for 3 hours or until peas are softened and soup has thickened. If soup is too thin, uncover and simmer 30 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
